Well, if it can be of any help, yesterday's post is still readable via your blog's feed, so I can copy and paste it here:

«Back in harness

I was really happy to back with my colleagues (and friends) in the office today. It was a full day with lots of stuff with finance and fund raising, with marketing and with...... - yes some opera stuff. So here I was with a lovely varied day. First a visit to our local coffee shop for a strong dose of caffeine. Then to one of our major sponsors of the last few years with a proposal for 2008.

Life returned to one with some social dimension with a visit from the charming Tim Nelson, the young artistic director of the American Opera Theater in Washington DC. Altogether to be encouraged.

Then we had some routine meetings followed by a meeting of our Finance Committee this early evening. It is remarkable to see the diversity of perspective amongst board members. The conservative and cautious are the chalk to the cheese of the passionate and enthusiastic "can do" characters - but the latter are no less businesslike. It is amusing to observe these dynamics at work.

I have deprived you of illustrations these last few days. I will try to correct this tomorrow. Today I have been catching up.»



that is VERY thoughtful and kind of you - thanks!


ORANJESTAD, Aruba - Felix rapidly strengthened into a dangerous Category 5 hurricane and churned through the Caribbean Sea on a path toward Central America, where forecasters said it could make landfall as “potentially catastrophic” storm.
Felix was packing winds of up to 165 mph as it headed west, according to the U.S. National Hurricane Center. It was projected to skirt Honduras’ coastline on Tuesday before slamming into Belize on Wednesday.
“As it stands, we’re still thinking that it will be a potentially catastrophic system in the early portions of this week, Tuesday evening, possibly affecting Honduras and then toward the coast of Belize,” said Dave Roberts, a hurricane specialist at the center in Miami.
